 Children will count in a variety of ways (e.g., by
1's, 2's, 5's, 10's) and record their totals. They will probably begin by taking too few or too
many and have to readjust their handfuls to get to 100.

 There are 20 animals and 62 legs in all. The
children can solve this many ways. For example, they can draw a picture of all the animals
and count or, figure out the total legs for each type of animal and then add them together,
using cubes, paper, or some other manipulative to figure out totals. There are 0 snake legs,
12 lion legs, 16 elephant legs, 10 bird legs, and 24 rabbit legs.
